Jakob Munthe, the product manager at Paradox Interactive, took to the PlayStation Blog to announce their new survival city building game – Surviving Mars.
The game is being created by both Haemimont Games and Paradox, however, as the game is still early development there isn’t much gameplay to talk about. But Munthe does note that the team is taking a lot of inspiration from current day NASA and SpaceX – both want to explore Mars in the near future.
Check out the new announcement trailer down below:
Munthe on the PlayStation blog:
As for the gameplay, it’s still a little early in development to share all of the nuts-and-bolts of game mechanics with everyone. What we will say is that Surviving Mars is a hardcore survival city-builder, where players will be tasked with creating a livable colony in the harsh, hostile environs of Mars, floating far removed from any help. Players’ colonies will have to produce water, air, and food on a planet that doesn’t have much of any to spare while creating habitats with enough activities for colonists to do that they don’t go mad from boredom or isolation.
Yet, where there are challenges and threats, there are also solutions and hope. The members of your Mars colony are humanity’s best: scientists that will create new knowledge and techniques for your new lives, and intrepid explorers that will find and solve greater mysteries than any on Earth.
Surviving Mars is still without a release date and price point, however, it is set to release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the near future.
